    Quick question about the cap threading. How many turns does it take to remove/install the cap?

    On a side note: Perdue University research has determined that it takes an average of 252 licks of a 20 human tongue sample set to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

    The real question is, which is more important?

    Nice pen! I also like how you staged it, especially the little dish.

    Wow, very nice pen you designed, EoC! I really like how the grip is concave shaped and there is no step-down between the body and the section. I've seen a lot of pens that are nice to have but then notice a steep step-down. My grip is typically right below where the threads on this pen are. BTW, are the threads smooth or sharp? The material you choose for the body and cap vs the steel colored furniture compliment each other nicely. A gold tone wouldn't have made it. I'm sure there is a lot of chatoyance in that blue alumina material.

    Congrats!

    All the Best.

    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    EOC, the first part of my query was serious...how many turns to remove/replace cap?
